This Is What A Space Net Base Jump Looks Like

What's the most daring thing you're going to do today? 

Walk to the corner shop with your shoe laces untied? Jump the final step of the bus? Collapse into the sofa without checking to see if you've moved the remote first? You nutter.

Chances are, you're not planning on jumping through a Pentagon Space Net. We hope you're a little more "grounded" than that.

The 2000 sq. ft handwoven net was the creation of Sketchy Andy Lewis and created by a group known as the Moab Monkeys. It took over seven years to design, with more than 500 man hours poured into its eventual construction. In position for only one week in Moab, Utah, USA, it saw more than 350 visitors, with more than 200 safe BASE jumps completed. This new GoPro video shows what it was like to take the quick route down.

We'll stick to drinking takeaway coffee with the lid off to get our thrills.
